What A Great Name for A Hand Sanitiser
The humble, ancient, cheap old bar of soap takes care of the virus much like it takes care of the oil in water. “It’s almost like a crowbar; it pulls all things apart.
“Soap doesn’t fail”. It doesn’t really matter the formulation of soap either. You don’t need “antibacterial soap” ordinary soap works fine. Body washes or shampoos will work too. “As long as you give it a little bit of time, it will do its job. Firstly your skin is wrinkly and it takes time for soap to penetrate into all the tiny folds and demolish the viruses that lurk within. Then the soap needs a few moments to do its chemical work. “You do need a bit of time for all the soap to interact back and forth with the virus particle. 20 seconds should do the trick just fine.
All of this, at least, makes me excited to wash my hands more. As I’m washing with soap and water and counting to 20, I’m imagining a battle being waged in the teeny-tiny folds of my skin. The soap is charging in, sticking to viruses (as well as dirt and other grease), and tearing them apart in brutal, heroic fashion. It’s almost like the a scene from Mission impossible but better because it’s real. It all helps stop the spread of this crazy virus.

What I Love About Dr Schwab
Invisible Glove has been formulated with all plant based ingredients. Washing your hands so often with soap of all kinds combined with the Alcohol in sanitisers is very drying for the skin and can cause horrible irritation leading to sore cracked hands. A combination of Witch Hazel and Aloe Vera in our invisible glove works on keeping the skin hydrated and calm. This balances out the drying effects of the Alcohol that protects us so well against the bacteria and viruses. (Invisible glove contains 65% Alochol)
